Charlotte International Airport Overlook

Name:   Charlotte International Airport Overlook


Description: This is a small park on the airport property that is only a hundred yards from an active runway.  The park is close to the north end of the runway.  The overlook is open until 10:30 pm so you can get night pictures.  You can take all the pictures you want or just watch the airplanes take off and land.  The kids would love this.

IF the wind is to the south then they will land and take off toward you if to the north the other way.  If you want pictures of landings it would be better to go when the wind is to the north take offs are better with wind to the south but still good the other way.
